Jaxons Preschool Grad

Last week we had a big day in our house. Jaxon had his last day of three year old preschool. I am super excited for summer... but Jaxon is already asking when he gets to go back to school. It may be a long summer... or I will be exhausted from planning Tons to keep him Busy. Jaxon loved Leap n Learn so much. We are excited to start with them again next year.

Welcome Summer

I live for Summer. Yes I know I live in Calgary and I know that I will only get summer weather like 3 weeks of the whole year... ok thats an exageration but its close. but i live for the sun and warmth. All my friends know... Amanda HATES winter and cold and rain and wind... I like to lay in the sun and burn and sweat and yeah.... SUMMER.
   Today it was summer! After days and days of rain the sun came out and spread some love! YAY! To celebrate we had an awesome friend get us into Lake Chaparral. Its a glorious thing! but the down side is it makes me miss all my chaparral friends like mad... how I wish I lived in chaparral! Anyways... Thanks Brooke for the super fun morning! My kids and I both had a blast! I wish every day was and beautiful as today. It just makes me happy!
  Another fun warm weather activity that my boys love is water guns. these Pics were taken a few weeks ago... but hey... why not share them right..
owen shoots all gangsta style with his gun all tilted to the side... cracks me up!

Jaxon likes squirting me... I try to convince him that getting the grass, or car, or fence is way more fun the getting mommy... but so far he doesnt believe me

Owen loves his slide.

Oh and an added treat! I have an ice cream maker... LOVE IT! I was lacking the ingredients to make ice cream... but I was craving some soooooo bad... so I looked around and I thought... sorbet would work and I have everything I need for that!
 So I made Peach Starberry Sorbet... yep it is even better then it sounds... and its crazy simple
here is the recipe

Peach Strawberry Sorbet
2 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups peaches
2 cups strawberries

make a simple syrup by heating the water and sugar in a pot until the sugar is completely dissovled. then add the cut up fruit. (I used frozen... fresh would be fine too) Allow the fruit to simmer in the syrup for a fwe minutes until the are really realy soft and mushy. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Blend mixture until smooth... I used my blender... but an immersion blender would work too. Then refridgerate for 3 hours... or over night. then just pour into the ice cream maker and press start... Mine took only 10 minutes! YUMMY!!!!!

Tub Fun

I have decided to be crafty this weekend. I have far too many projects on my to do list. So I am determined to get some of them done this weekend. In order to motivate myself I have decided to post one of the last crafty things I did.... yes I made them a while ago... thats why Im so ready to do some more crafting...
Felt Food! I love felt Food! Here are some green apple slices I whipped up one day for Jaxon and Owen. They love felt food. It doesnt always get played with how it was meant to be but they do love it none the less!

Now that Owen has stopped peeing in the tub... or rather now that Jaxon has stopped noticing Owen peeing in tub... we can convince the boys to have bathes together. Its awesome! Cuts Tub time down by alot! YAY! They have so much fun!. They splash and dump water on each other. And the scream and scream and scream!

owen loves the tub... well all water actually and always cries when its time to get out!

Day Out with Thomas

Ok So I know it was over a month ago that we went to Day out with Thomas. But I finally have gotten around to blogging about. It was such a fun day! Both the boys love Thomas the Tank Engine. Owen is the biggest fan Ive ever seen. He LOVES Thomas. He cries when we turn it off and he knows all the engines... yep my 18 month old knows the Engines by name. Its super awesome. This year for Owens birthday I am planning a Thomas the Train party. Its going to be great.
  Jaxon always has a blast when we go to Day out with Thomas. Owen had fun too... but I think there was a bit too much noise and people for him. He stuck pretty close and snuggly with Tim and I. But he was still smiling most of the time.
  I cant wait to go again next year. Its a great family tradition!
Playing trains!

Owen Loves playing trains!

Owen got a James Tattoo

Jaxon got a Thomas Tattoo. Both boys were so sad when they washed off!
On the train!

Off to have fun

Owen figuring out the little Maze

Jaxon did the maze like 10 times in a row... as fast as he could!

Jaxon even got to drive a model train!
